Karaoke Lyrics Deliver Don't Drink And Drive Message

karaoke_drunk_driving.jpg

Saatchi & Saatchi Frankfurt came up with unique, interesting and very targeted method of convincing those too drunk to drive to consider other methods of travelling home after a long night of drinking. During Saint Patrick's Day this year they changed the lyrics to karaoke songs replacing them with don't drink and drive-related lyrics.

The strategy can be summed up quite simply. If you're drunk enough to sing karaoke, you're probably too drunk to drive. Effective targeting if you ask us.

Pine-Sol Lady Scares the Crap Out of Men

pine_sol_prank.jpg

The power of Pine-Sol, baby! The prank-tastic power of Pine-Sol! Filmed by Conscious Minds at a test house in Pasadena, CA in April, Pine-Sol invited 50 men to a product test. They were told Pine-Sol was documenting how men between the ages of 25-35 use their product to clean messes. That's were the test ended and the fun began. Diane Amos, the Pine-Sol lady herself, was hidden in a cabinet, beside a window, and behind a door. As the men cleaned, out she would jump with hilarious results. Good stuff. Way more soul than Mr. Clean!

Fiat Photo Bombs Volkswagen on Google Street View

vw_streetview.jpg

Jalopnik reports Fiat conducted an elaborate Google Street View stunt in which the car manufacturer - with or without some inside information - was able to park a Fiat 500 outside the Volkswagen offices in Sweden just before the Google Street View camera car drove by capturing the moment.

The image is likely to be in the Google Street View database for at least a year so VW is just going to have to deal with it. Though we don't doubt many who happen to view the image will simply assume the vehicle is a VW. Fiat should have affixed a giant Fiat decal to the side of the vehicle for a bigger slap in the face.

Fruit Grown in Shape of Juice Boxes to Promote Juice

We're quite positive we've never before heard Old MacDonald's Farm used as a method for explaining how a guerrilla marketing stunt was performed but we have to admit it works in this case. Ageisober, to explain how they created a stunt to illustrate just how real Camp Juice is, created juice boxes made out of real fruit. They created juice box molds in which the fruit was grown. They then placed the finished product in the produce sections of grocery stores.

Cool as the stunt is, our favorite part is how they decided to explain the stunt.

Sprite Shower Cools Rio de Janeiro Beach Goers

sprite_shower_rio_better.jpg

When we first took a look at this Sprite Shower work Ogilvy Brazil did for Sprite we wondered, "A Sprite shower? That would be a little sticky wouldn't it?" Well, luckily the fluid coming from the shower was water and not Sprite.

The installation was crafted to bring some relief to Rio do Janeiro beach goers who were sweltering under the sun. We suppose they could just go swimming in the water but whatever.

Fiat New Uno Powered by Pee

fiat_new_uno_pee.jpg

Here's a fun one. To illustrate the Fiat Uno's great fuel economy, Leo Burnett Tailor Made in Brazil launched a campaign called If Pee Were Gas. The agency installed flow monitors of sorts in urinals. Based on the amount of pee dispensed by the urinal visitor, an image of the Uno on a flat screen mounted above the urinal would travel a certain distance. The more pee, the further the car would travel. Check out the case study video below.
